Even more golf tracking on BlackBerry

Comments

GreenFinder is the latest product in a recent spate of golf tracking apps. The inaugural release of Itinerant Software, GreenFinder uses your GPS-equipped BlackBerry to display your distance from the front, back, and center of the green, and how far (or, in my case, how dismayingly close) you are to hazards. A yearly fee of $35 gives you access to free software upgrades and an unlimited number of course downloads if you happen to be a globe-trotting golfer. And unlike the most other golf tracking apps, this one’s been designed from the ground up for the BlackBerry.

Magmic liscences In-Fusio’s games for BlackBerry

Comments

Our BlackBerry game-developping neighbours here in Ottawa, Magmic, announced last week a partnership with In-Fusio that would let Magmic port In-Fusio’s games over to BlackBerry and sell them on their outlet, Bplay. We give out Bplay stuff aplenty on our Weekly Contests, so if there’s any stuff in In-Fusio’s catalogue that tickles your fancy, stick around; odds are you’ll be able to win it soon enough. In the same stroke, Magmic also announced their new game, Golden Tee, for you golf-enthusiasts out there.

Track your golf game by GPS

Comments

Golf ClubsFor any hardcore, BlackBerry-totin’ golfers out there, you might want to look into IntelliGolf’s recently-released Eagle Edition for BlackBerry. BlackBerrys and golf both rate pretty high on the fancy-pants-o-meter, so it’s high time they start working together. IntelliGolf can help you keep score, measure distances, track stats and wagers, and a whole bunch of other functions that are handy on the fairway. The software supports the BlackBerry 7100-series, 7700-series, 8100-series, 8300-series, 8700-series, and 8800-series. Features include:

* Scoring
* Shot tracking
* Satellite GPS
* Sidegame wagers (35+)
* Statistics and graphs (250+)
* Signature courses (23,000+), and
* Sharing of information between handhelds.

It’s $59.95 for the software, which is probably peanuts compared to your golf club membership dues.
